Teenage Girl From Brooke County Is Killed in ATV Crash

BETHANY — Grief counselors were at Brooke Middle School on Monday after an eighth-grader was killed in an ATV crash Friday night.

Izabella Buck, 14, of Follansbee, died at the scene of the crash and another girl was injured, Brooke County Sheriff Larry Palmer said Monday.

Chief Deputy Scott Adams said 911 was called to the site of the accident about 7 p.m. When first responders arrived at the scene near McAdoo Ridge, they found two 14-year-old girls and the crashed ATV.

Izabella was pronounced dead at the scene and the second girl, who was not identified, was transported to Weirton Medical Center, where she was treated and released, Palmer said.

Adams said the accident remains under investigation.

Brooke Middle School will have grief counselors on hand during the next few days.
